During the forum, we will provide you with an update on the enhancements that have been made to the site over the past year and a preview of upcoming enhancements, many of which have been inspired by your feedback. You will also hear from our data partners concerning their efforts to modernize legislative data to make it more accessible. Most importantly, this forum is a listening session–we want to hear from you about your legislative information needs and how we can better serve them.

Would you publish an agenda in advance?
A 3-hour meeting is a significant amount of time for you and for the public. (We appreciate your making so much time available.) If people want to listen to just the update on Congress.gov or just to share their views, it would be helpful to let them know what time to sign on. Thank you.
Hi Daniel. Sure, I just updated the post to add an agenda.
Interested in how site developers are seeing data reused and repackaged on other sites, including fresh legislative action, embedded searches, and visuals like stock Member/Senator photos.
